cannibalism

Getting closer to Halloween! Today's countdown is brought to you by one of my favorite childhood movies, "Motel Hell". Ahhh, nothing says "good, wholesome family film" than a couple of country bumpkins who plant people, cut their vocal cords and harvest them by pulling their heads off with a tractor. It's fun movies like this that turned me into the upstanding individual I am today.

It’s the zombie apocalypse and things couldn’t be going worse. Food is running low, the human race has dwindled down to a small group of survivors, and it’s cold as crap outside. What do you do? The writers of the new film “Bled White” seem to think the only obvious choice is to turn to cannibalism. That’s right everybody, zombies and cannibals in the same film.

This week's episode starts with a discussion of the merits of the Aussie cannibal flick "Dying Breed," and ends with a debate about which one of us is most American.

Sometimes it feels like the days of discovering a new cult film are gone. With the internet and the DVD revolution a movie can go from obscurity to widespread discussion to fanboy backlash before it’s even had a proper release.

New "Final Destination 4" pics surfaced today. Does this signal the beginning of the hype-train for this one? Don't forget it's in glorious 3D, which means lots of heads and guts flying at your face. Ahhh, good times.

New "Whiteout" still, from the thriller starring Kate Beckinsale. Basically she's an FBI agent hunting a serial killer in Antarctica, right before the sun is about to set for 6 months. So yes, probably the least original story in the world at this point. And with the cold weather, I'm guessing we won't be seeing any leather body suits, either.

Todd Lincoln to adapt the comic "The Nye Incidents" for Dark Castle. Lincoln is currently working on Universal's adaptation of "Hack/Slash". So what's "The Nye Incidents" about? A children's television scientist who goes apeshit and kills all the world's children? I kid, I kid. It's actually about a "medical examiner on the hunt of a killer of alien abductees". Sounds pretty great, actually, although I still want to see my interpretation make it to the big screen.

Brad Dourif will be returning as the voice of "Chucky" in the upcoming remake of "Child's Play". Other than that news, all is quiet on the that front, so we'll give you more when we hear it.

"All The Boys Love Mandy Lane" will be hitting theaters July 17th? That's what Entertainment Weekly is telling us. I'm not seeing if it will be a wide release or not, but is that possible? Guess we'll find out.

It's one thing to kill your brother, it's another thing to eat his body to try and cover up your crime, and yet another to make the whole ordeal last for 6 months. Does human even stay good for that long?

Two cannibals have been feasting on the remains of their brother for the last six months in an effort to hide his murder, it was revealed today.

The brothers, identified only as 28-year-old Timur and 23-year-old Marat admitted killing their older brother Rafis and then eating him, in the central Russian city of Perm.

Check out 3 stills from the "Saw" video game, a project which we knew was in development but haven't heard anything about in a long time. The game from Konami is set to hit shelves for the 360, PS3 and the PC this October, to coincide with the release of "Saw VI". Sounds smart to me.

"Cirque Du Freak" has a new release date, January 10th, 2009. The film stars Salma Hayek, John C. Reilly and Orlando Jones, and is about a vampire who drafts a 14 year old to serve as his assistant. This date puts it on the (for now) same date as the US remake of "Let The Right One In". Thinking about all those vampire movies in one weekend is making me sick to my stomach already.

Richard Kelly hits up his Myspace to set the record straight on all things "The Box", his latest film set for release opposite "Saw VI" this October. If you take his words at face value, he seems to be tempering the bad buzz that all of the release date shifts have caused. Then again, doesn't every director do that? I guess we'll find out who was right in about 6 months.

I don't know anything about this movie other than the fact that it's called "Slave" and stars Natassia Malthe. And strangely, that's enough for me.
